NBA 2K12 To Feature Three Legends On Their Cover

 ~ The NBA is coming off one of their more exciting seasons in recent history. Derrick Rose had a sensational year for the Chicago Bulls that ended up being an MVP year for him. Dirk Nowitzki erased any doubt that he is a big time NBA star when he led the Dallas Mavericks to an NBA championship. The season mainly featured the year-long storyline in Miami with Lebron James and Chris Bosh teaming up with Dywane Wade. Those are all valid choices to put on the cover of the upcoming NBA 2K12 video game. Well, the makers of the game decided to take the Hall of Fame route for the 2nd year in a row.

 Michael Jordan will return for the 2nd consecutive year to the cover of NBA 2K12 and this time he will not be alone. Fellow all-time greats Ervin “Magic” Johnson and Larry Bird will also get their own covers on the video game.

 The three stars will each have his own cover with the Bird and Magic covers being made available in limited quantity at launch. Jordan will once again be the primary cover star.

 NBA2K12 is expected to be released on October 4th and just like last year it won’t have any competition from EA Sports, their next basketball game will not be out until 2012.


NFL > Roy Williams Gets Back Engagement Ring, Settles With Ex-Girlfriend

~ The case of the missing engagement ring (but not really missing) has apparently been resolved and Roy Williams must be relieved to put this behind him and move on. The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver found himself in the headlines for reasons that were not even close to anything football related. Williams reached a settlement with his ex-girlfriend regarding a $76,000 engagement ring when it was returned to him.

 This all started when Williams decided to propose to his then-girlfriend Brooke Daniels, by mailing her a ring. The overnight package also included a taped marriage proposal from Williams. Daniels turned him down however did not return the pricey ring. This led to Williams taking the legal route and filing a lawsuit to recover the ring.

 Apparently Daniels and her father Michael kept their word that they would look to avoid any battles in court and return the ring.

 Money has a way of changing the thinking pattern. Mailing a $76,000 engagement ring to your boyfriend or girlfriend is risky business. Especially if you’re a professional athlete who is employed by “America’s Team”, the Dallas Cowboys. Hopefully a lesson learned for Roy Williams. Money can be a damn good down payment, it’s not everything though.
